After seeing the number of delids I thought it would be nice to get an ideal of the first time success rates and the type of fails.
Tried with those. Could not get it even go in 0.5mm. Could not get a 'grip'.Originally Posted by Powermonkey500
They had some thin one-sided razor blades in the painting section of my local hardware store (Home Depot)
I am looking for those but my wife could not get any ...Originally Posted by Systemlord
First attempt success in 10 minutes, after all was said and done it was far easier than when I imagined! For those that want to make things easier get a blade that is a little more than two times thinner that the gap between the IHS and PCB, picture of blade below. You can find these blades at any drug store or pharmacy. The nice thing about these blades if they are not super stiff like the single sided blades, they flex to some degree so it will slice through that glue like butter!
I am old enough to know that too ;pOriginally Posted by Systemlord
It's a very common item here in the States, it's actually for an older type of shaver that's been around for decades.
that "default picture" is called Avatar,Originally Posted by Matt-Matt
I'm hoping that first time 'round I'll be fine. As you can see my blade in the default picture (I guess that's what it's called?).
It worked on some OEM built Pentium 4's and a Celeron 326 and It was a success on that. (Can't check temps because I don't have a copy of XP)
